Staying Safe

Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
Hi, my name is Laura Southall and I'm the family support worker here at Lostock Gralam Primary School. I'm employed by the charity Changing Lives Together but spend most of my time here in school. I'm a mum of three girls so know just how difficult it can be juggling family when things sometimes aren't going quite to plan. You can find me in school on Mondays, Wednesdays and after half term Fridays aswell! I can support you in many different ways - whether it's some friendly, positive advice over the phone, referrals to foodbank or other local agencies or advice on housing, benefits, parenting and money management to name just a few. If you feel like you need a little bit of extra support, please feel free to give me a call at school. Look forward to speaking to you!
